Osiris (Wesir) – Egyptian Mythology – Osiris was an Egyptian god, usually identified as the god of the afterlife, the underworld and the dead. He is classically depicted as a green-skinned man with a pharaoh's beard, partially mummy-wrapped at the legs, wearing a distinctive crown with two large ostrich feathers at either side, and holding a symbolic crook and flail. Osiris is at times considered the oldest son of the Earth god Geb, and the sky goddess Nut, as well as being brother and husband of Isis. Osiris is not only a merciful judge of the dead in the afterlife, but also the underworld agency that granted all life, including sprouting vegetation and the fertile flooding of the Nile River.
Nice job, what kind of medium did you use? Watercolors? Colored Pencil? Acrylics?
This is amazing! I LOVE this!
Thank you! Can you believe the original artwork has gold foil on it?
